It is with deepest sympathy to Betsey and Ted's family that I express my sorrow on your loss. He was a very good roommate, teammate, and probably the hardest working student I knew at Bates. May God rest his soul and may your fondest and happiest memories of your time with Ted help you through this difficult time. Jim Callahan '65.

Ted Davis was always kind to me. He had a great laugh and smile, and a warm comforting way.

I knew him since I was a young child and always looked to him with great respect.

I am saddened by this loss!
